    March 10, 2017 - The 2009 Sigaro required more than an hour of aeration to get going, but once it emerged from its shell, it cranked out copious aromas of licorice, smoke and violets. It is full bodied, with graphite, cassis and earth dominating the palate, and a long, mineral-infused finish that shows considerable, albeit fine-grained, tannin. This is quite a bit more restrained and graceful than your typical high end Napa cab. A solid wine that could still improve with a few more years in the cellar. 94+.

    September 7, 2013 - Late summer gathering with friends.: Dark purple. Really nice nose of flowers and black cherry. Remarkable fruit on the palate with hints of mineral. Tannins well integrated. Wished for a longer finish, but really nice wine. WOTN for me.

    July 15, 2013 - Smokey nose with black cherry flavor profile. Somewhat chocolately over time. Mineral. Lots of layers and complexity. I question the qpr at $175.

    February 3, 2013 - Palate coating--rich with tons of candied cherry and hints of tobacco coming through along with fantastic structure. A joy to drink. Still humming nicely on day 2 with a bit more minerality poking out on the nose.
